50 years ago when I was courting the future Mrs. Spldng, I introduced her to a brew that she really liked the taste of: Genny Cream Ale. Through trial and error we finally established that she did not like most beers; she liked ale.

We called the cream ale Genny screamers.

Maybe CSB ahead?

My friends and I were poor when younger and people either drank Genesee or Busch. To me Busch was lightly flavored water. Genny had some taste but the cream ale was beer. Around Christmas every year they would have the Bock and that stuff would hit ya.

One Easter in the late 80s my buddy and I started drinking in the morning. I noticed on the 12-pack an address to send comments to. We proceeded to write an early morning drunk letter in crayon, yes, literally written in crayon. I don't remember the whole thing but it started "Dear fine sirs at the Genesee brewing company, We really love your beer and drink it everyday." I forget the rest but it was pretty out there.

About two weeks later I get home and there is a box on my porch. Turns out the biggest distributor around me was only a couple of miles away and the sent out a representative to talk to us. Left me Genny t-shirts and hats and coupons. Wish I had been home to see what they thought of the letter but I never pursued it further.

when I was a kid my dad drank Cream Ale. at one point he was a sales rep for Genny, and we had all kinds of swag - wooden signs, steins, trays, etc - all over our house.

he'd buy the returnable cases of the stuff, and he knew that if one of the bottles wasn't filled properly or was broken that he could call the company to complain. I remember the Genny rep for our area would be out to our house every once in a while to bring him a fresh case to replace the one bottle

/can't drink Genny. my house doesn't have seat belts on the toilets

20 years ago I legally bought my first keg. The cost was $35. The beer was Genny Cream Ale.

Meh. A party ball tree would look like actual ornaments. Hot wire some lights in those bad boys.

And now, I just realized that had I kept those spent beer balls, I would have the greatest Xmas display in my neighborhood.

I've never had, not been part of, a large group of friends.

So it was always "let's get a half barrel" for me.

Well... technically yes, a half keg. Full kegs are 140 lb unwieldy monsters. Pony kegs for a low key, just the 5 of us kind of gig. Miss those days too.
"Bars?"
"Nah, broke."
"Pony?"
"I dunno. They still got our deposit?"
"Yep"
"Let's go."
